Advantages of steel castings

1. Wider Design Flexibility

This form features the maximized free selection upon shapes and sizes of these kind castings, especially some complicated shapes and hollow forms. Furthermore, steel castings can be produced, depending on the unique crafts of core castings. Besides that, it can be easily molded, reshaped and made into finished products per corresponding drawings quickly.

2. Good Flexibility and Variability of Metallurgical Manufacture

For it, you can select different chemical compositions and organizational structures to meet requirements of different projects. Different heat treatment processes can be applied through its mechanical properties and these properties can be used in great scope for upgrading its welding capacity and applicability.

3. Improved Whole Structure Strength

Because of its high reliability, exclusive design for reducing weight and short delivery time, the competitive advantages on price and economy will be improved.

4. Large-scale Weight Variation

Generally speaking, one small size steel castings is only 10 grams, but one large size one is likely to reach tens or hundreds of tons.

Compared with forged steel components:

The mechanical properties of one steel castings, which are located in different directions, have few change. So the point has more advantage than forged steel. Thus, designers can adopt steel castings to make those components with complicated shapes and non stress concentrations by making use of the above advantages.

Nevertheless, the performances of vibration absorption, wear resistance and maneuvering in steel castings are inferior to the ones of iron castings. And the costs are much higher than the ones of iron castings.
